Mrs. Tibber would likely be able to proof.
Great of you to offer. :up:
BTW, anyone with a Mac can "print" any document from any application as a PDF.
However, given the relative simplicity of this box, I expect the First Look might actually be done before I get mine unboxed.
I also fooer my srvices as a proofrder ...
OK, I offer my services as a proofreader, and PDF document converter. "Have Adobe, will convert."
Unless there are objections, I will maintain the master copy, and add everyone's inputs (Pictures, text, anecdotal experiences, etc.)
So far, for the "First Look" document, we appear to have:
Smuuth: Maintain/Archive Master Document and write Introduction
RunnerFL: Initial Outside Pictures (Package Contents, etc.)
Earl Bonovich: Inside Pictures
Tom Robertson (Mrs Tibber): Proofing
Anyone else want to pick a section to author/provide details?
I nominate Tony to make a video of him physically hooking up the box... and then sitting at his door again... waiting for the epiphany to come through the front door.
The epiphany?? Isn't that when the Red Wings win the President's Trophy but don't make it to the Stanley Cup finals?
You guys are COLD. :lol:
That's a good idea. We can have the first video of how to hook up.
You don't want to see what day three was going to look like. I was gonna get all Castaway. It wouldn't have been pretty.
The video might not be a bad idea. I have a DVD camcorder but my problem would be uploading the files.
Edit: I'm out of mini DVDs
I'll take ten Stanley Cups to two any day.
Setup: Setup is extremely straight forward. Unplug the power from the HR21. Connect USB between AM21 and HR21, connect the power cord coming out of the AM21 to the HR21, connect the antenna cable to the HR21. Once all connections are in place, plug in the power that was originally going to the HR21 into the AM21. The box will reboot normally and then the process of setting up the antenna via software can begin.
Got it, thanks, Tony.
We have to put the local market thing in there during setup. More like a how to for secondary market or something.
Ok, here are 3 zip files with 23 pics of my AM21 and setup screens. The setup screens are in order. The only setup screen I'm missing is the one that asks for the zip code of your Secondary Market.
One of the screens and the closeup pic of the back of the unit are a bit blurry but the others look good.
Feel free to use what you see fit.
Thanks, RunnerFL. Got them.
I have a secondary market that I can add and capture the images for. Let me know if I should include that.
Its not an epiphany...its foreshadowing for later this season!!!
Don't forget that some of the on-screen graphics may change based on our feedback! For instance, one screen needs to change "later" to "Later" in the text. I also suggested some tips be added on the ZIP code screen ("Press SELECT if this is the ZIP code you want to set up"), and on a later screen ("Otherwise, press DONE"). We may get a couple of CE pushes while the AM21 field trial is open, so it may be necessary to clear the OTA settings and "start over" to document the setup if DIRECTV made changes to the OTA configuration process.
I got a question. Will the OTA channels show up on Directv's website so we can do remote booking or on line scheduling on those channels?
